Colorado needs you! Our healthcare and behavioral health industry is experiencing a historic shortage of skilled workers to provide life-saving care. AmeriCorps was made for times like these!

Be a part of a national service movement in the healthcare field, and care for your neighbors.

Community Resource Center and Serve Colorado are recruiting 150 AmeriCorps members into the Colorado Healthcare Corps. In this national service position, AmeriCorps members will serve in-person at healthcare facilities including hospitals, residential care facilities, and clinics. Gain a year of hands-on experience in the healthcare field paired with leadership training, professional development, and career coaching.

AmeriCorps members serving with Healthcare Corps will receive:

  • a living allowance up to $30,200 distributed across 11 months,
  • a monthly housing stipend (equal to 75% of the fair market value of a 1bd in the host site’s county),
  • health and dental insurance
  • access to mental health support, 
  • a monthly child care stipend, and 
  • an education award at the end of service up to $6,345 to repay student loans or for future education expenses (if age 55+, the education award can be transferred to a child/grandchild/foster child.)

The following positions are in high demand. Some sites may require specific certifications; others offer training towards certification for specific positions. Additional information on site-specific requirements will be discussed during the interview process. Service positions will vary based on the host site.
